Argentina is, no doubt, a very beautiful and lovely country. Every year we are offering new possibilities for our participants to enjoy fascinating locations and have an exciting experience abroad. Ethnically and culturally, Argentines are a perfect mix of Latin American and European, especially Italian and Spanish styles. This mixture of different peoples and cultures has created a rich and unique Argentinean culture separate from the rest of Latin America. People are very warm, open, and friendly, and our students are always surprised to see how Argentines make the most of every situation. They are not afraid to show their emotions, are friendly by nature, and are willing to give foreigners the chance to fit in the country, speak their language, and have lots of fun. Those who visit Argentina will be surprised by its impressive landscapes. The country’s natural wonders offer unique attractions, ranging from the southern Andean mountains to the northern deserts and from Iguazú Falls to the magnificent wildlife and vastness of Patagonia. Not to be missed! Location The Argentina High School Program is available in a number of secondary schools located in cities and smaller towns all over Argentina. The main destinations are the city of Córdoba, small towns in the Province of Córdoba, and smaller cities all over the country; we have also been expanding to include other locations such as La Rioja, Catamarca, San Juan, etc. We care for our students with a consistent personalized approach.

Participants are offered by local Representatives an optional 10- day excursion to Patagonia and to the Northwest of Argentina through a very well-known Argentinean tour operator specializing in youth travel. These trips take place during the months of October/ November (Patagonia trip), and April/May (Northwestern Argentina) and have special and convenient rates for our students. It is a good opportunity for our participants to meet with other fellow students placed in other Argentine cities so they can all share their experiences.
Unlike other countries where it may be very difficult to integrate into the new society, Argentina offers a very intense social life, an ideal situation for our participant students. Argentines are very spontaneous and there is always something going on.
Students can join any kind of extra-curricular activities in clubs and a variety of cultural institutions, such as sports, theatre, music, etc.
In some schools, these activities can be done in special training courses.
